It's helpful to keep in mind, big-picture-wise, that ocular surface diseases are often multifactorial. So for example, there might be underlying conditions like bleph/rosacea, there might be some contact lens induced stuff, and maybe one or two thus far unidentified issues going on with you, plus there could be an eyelid issue (bearing in mind that eyelids are important not only for sealing your eyes shut at night but for pumping and spreading tears during the day) contributing to just one eye. So the challenge is to figure out what all is going on and what's important to treat, not simply identifying a root cause and treating it.
Another important little fact is that what you feel/experience often does not match the clinical signs they are seeing AND it is common to have a better eye/worse eye.
I wouldn't expect dramatic improvement anywhere near that quickly.
It has been a bout 1.5 wks since the last visit and can't say I have noticed a huge improvement. I am skeptical of the "belpharitis" diganosis because during the last visit, he said the severity of my blepharitis is about the same in both eyes. But- the symptoms I experience is only in my left eye. Logic would dictate that I would have some symptoms w/ my right eye if it is indeed blepharitis- but I have none. My right eye has never been a problem. Always just the left.
Your story reminds me of myself a bit, many many years ago. I had a chronic issue with my left eye that would interfere with my contact lens wear, which is a big part of my fateful decision to have LASIK. Based on everything I now know, I think I had GPC. Wish somebody had diagnosed it. But they always said that should happen to both eyes, and ditto allergies which is the thing they did sometimes diagnose and treat.
